Dr Kristin KORNERUP
Instructor & Director
Before becoming a Pilates enthusiast and certified Instructor, I spent 20 years in the world of Biomedical Research, both as a hands-on scientist in the lab and as a Scientific Project Manager. I spent much of my time studying chronic diseases and the ugly consequences of the sedentary lifestyle. That was until I experienced Pilates first-hand and realised what an incredible tool it is to improve our overall health and well-being. Now I'm dedicated to passing on this knowledge to my clients and students, and helping them discover the power of their mind-body connection.
I gained my certification as a Comprehensive Pilates (Mat & Apparatus) Instructor through one of the most renowned Pilates Academies in the world, BASI (Body Arts & Science International).
At PURE Pilates we believe that movement is a key element of our overall HEALTH and well-being. And that EVERYBODY and EVERYONE should have access to quality functional movement classes. PURE Pilates is a small, boutique Pilates Studio focused on improving the well-being of our clients in a tangible and durable manner. The Apparatus classes cater for a maximum of 3 clients at any one time. This ensures that we can provide the required attention to all clients and ensure that movements are done with precision and control.
In the last century, the eating, sleeping and waking habits of the typical Westerner have grown so destructive to the health of the body. We spend hours hunched over, looking down at our mobile devices every day. As Rael Isacowitz, founder and Director of BASI (Body Arts & Science International) likes to say, “We spend our lives in flexion”. As a result, we need Pilates more than ever to retrain our bodies back into correct alignment and correct posture, if only to avoid the development of chronic, debilitating musculoskeletal conditions.
At PURE Pilates the emphasis is on the individual, and on the individual's specific needs, objectives and goals.
